Item Description...
It's a marketer's dream to have two PBS superstars, Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church, singing in Christmas Glory from Westminster. Bocelli and Church (who don't sing together here) are among a handful of performers in this 1999 service from London's Westminster Abbey, including actresses Greta Scacchi and Joan Plowright and Welsh baritone Bryn Terfel.

Following an introduction to the abbey by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh (his wedding took place there), the first part of the hourlong service tells the Christmas story, alternating poetry and Bible readings with musical selections from the choir and soloists, including Messiah's "For unto us a child is born" and "But who may abide the day of his coming" by Terfel. Bocelli contributes two Schubert selections, "Mille Cherubino in Coro" and the beloved "Ave Maria," as well as "Sancta Maria," a version of Mascagni's famous melody from Cavalleria Rusticana. Church performs Stephen Adams's "The Holy City" (from her second CD) and shares "Silent Night" with Terfel. The program isn't all solemnity, however. Actor Richard Griffiths offers a spirited reading from A Christmas Carol near the abbey's famous Poets' Corner, where Dickens is buried. A blessing from the Dean of Westminster closes the distinguished evening. --David Horiuchi

An uplifting experience  Jan 8, 2008
Both my husband and I were touched by the combined grandeur of the venue, the beauty of the voices and the spiritual power of the selections. This is what Christmas should be about.
A Wonderful Experience  Jan 1, 2008
The soul fulfilling voice of Andrea was complemented by the rest of the cast. A very entertaining DVD.
Christmas Glory from Westminster (DVD)  Dec 8, 2007
Sure to become a classic in our household, the "Christmas Glory from Westminster" is a fantastic tapestry of sights and sounds. The enchanting architecture of the abbey decorated for the Holidays creates a beautiful backdrop for the singers who perform some of the most peaceful of musical compositions. This is a DVD that will soothe even the most stressed-out of us during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.
A Christmas Musical Package With Andrea Bocelli  Feb 27, 2005
A Christmas package with Andrea Bocelli, Charlotte Church, choir boys and scripture readings. It has the Christmas spirit and Andrea Bocelli sounds great. An evening of Christmas music, readings, and poetry in a beautiful abbey are presented to the viewer for 60 minutes.

Christmas from Westminster  Dec 19, 2004
A formal holiday video that will put you in the mood for Christmas. It shows a "high brow" concert from Westminster with soloist Charlotte Church and Andrea Bocelli. The voices, especially Andrea's are pleasant and powerful. The boy's choir is also inspirational. The scenery and background are very British as well as the commentary. A nice change of pace.
